Who will house a rapidly aging America?

America’s older population is in the midst of unprecedented growth, but the country is not prepared to meet the housing needs of this aging group, says Housing America’s Older Adults, a new report by the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies (JCHS) and AARP Foundation. The number of adults in the U.S. aged 50 and over is expected to grow to 133 million by 2030, an increase of more than 70 percent since 2000 (see interactive map).  But housing that is affordable, physically accessible, well-located, and coordinated with supports and services is in too short supply.  Learn more from The Cleveland Plain Dealer and Harvard JCHS.
